Subject: The 50's was another era
Obviously, the effects look really old and sort of funny, if compared to now...
But the story is good and enjoyable.
Once drawn in, it's nice to sit back and enjoy the whole plot.
Simple but effective for a calm evening, or rainy afternoon.

Subject: Think Small
With its good production values, good cast and even a worthy background score, this is solid '50s science fiction - that is until minute 28 when it makes a sudden left turn into downtown Schlockville, with our hero landing on a mini-planet full of 6 inch people, the cute ones in miniskirts. Rather than a disappointment, it turns this flick into a whole different kind of fun, featuring silent film star Francis X Bushman, beautiful girls including Coleen Gray and one of the funniest monsters ever. The planet-side plot involves a trial with an all-miniskirt jury, a push-pole duel to the death (almost), a space war against the dreaded "Solarites" and the aforementioned monster stumbling around papier-mache cave sets carrying an unconscious cutie. What more could you want? Don't miss this one! CAST NOTES: In spite of her good looks and acting talent (see "Nightmare Alley" costarring Tyrone Power) Coleen Gray's film career never managed to go very far. If the old studio system had survived, it might have been a different story. Francis X Bushman's acting career spanned from 1909 to 1966, during which he appeared in no less than 209 productions, usually in starring roles.
